In the days of yore, after a long day of hunting and gathering, people would gather around the fire as a wise old man who looked something like a turtle wearing a bearskin would amaze them with stories of adventure and wonder. Unfortunately, we are no longer hunter/gatherers and no one is sure where the old guy in the bearskin has gone off to… So, we turn instead to the wise and entertaining Star Wars Tales #8!

For  Star Wars  fans who want a better understanding of various topics, there can be a lot of material to wade through. In The Playlist, we’ll curate select installments of  Star Wars  that will give you that greater understanding of a specific topic. Consider it your own Jedi Archives — or cheat sheet for your Jedi midterms.

For the most part, Star Wars is thought of as an adventure story. Space opera. Lighthearted. But that doesn’t mean Star Wars doesn’t delve into other genres. From samurai films and Westerns to war movies and Hitchcock, Star Wars is able to pull off just about everything. One of my favorite genres to see Star Wars take on, especially during the month of October, is horror.

1. Star Wars: The Clone Wars – “The Lair of Grievous”   (Season 1, Episode 10) —  The first entry on the list introduces us to General Grievous at his home. Kit Fisto and his former Padawan, Nahdar Vebb, have to infiltrate the gothic lair of Grievous and it’s creepy and amazing all at the same time.

2. Star Wars: The Clone Wars – “Brain Invaders” (Season 2, Episode 8) —  Who doesn’t squirm when they think of a mind-controlling alien burrowing into their nostril and turning friends into enemies? This is exactly what Ahsoka has to contend with on an ill-fated voyage across the galaxy.

3. Star Wars: The Clone Wars – “The Zillo Beast”   (Season 2, Episode 18), “The Zillo Beast Strikes Back” (Season 2, Episode 19) —  What’s more horrifying than a giant, unstoppable monster rising up from the ground and attacking everyone? The Zillo Beast episodes, inspired by Godzilla and King Kong, offer a fun bit of fright.

4. Star Wars: The Clone Wars – “Massacre” (Season 4, Episode 19) — What list of Halloween-themed Star Wars would be complete without the inclusion of Nightsister Zombies? When General Grievous attacks Dathomir, Mother Talzin is left no other option to protect her home planet than to resurrect fallen Nightsisters.

Star Wars Tales is a series of comics that began on September 29 , 1999 and ended on July 13 , 2005 published by Dark Horse Comics . Each issue is an anthology of stories from various eras of the Star Wars timeline. Although the stories themselves are unrelated, many issues were themed around a single character, group or era. Each story varies in length, with six or so stories in each issue, adding up to a total of 64 pages. Two covers were produced for each issue, one illustrated, another a photo-cover.

Issue #1 to Issue #20 were edited by Peet Janes (Issues 1 and 2) and Dave Land (Issues 3-20) and were labeled Infinities , placing them outside the canon (though this is not to say that the events depicted are permanently outside of the official continuity, just that they should not be considered canon unless or until they are endorsed by a canon source). [1]

However, in-universe, the premise is that the stories of the Tales series are holo rentals from Peeja Mobet's Holo Emporium . Peeja Mobet introduced the first two issues (before editor Peet Janes left the series and Dave Land took over), talking about the stories presented. Even he admits not everything that is found in his shop is "historically accurate." In his words (taken from Issue 1):

"Some folks take liberties with their characters, others ignore potentially significant events, and still others speculate about what might have happened if something didn't occur when and where it should have. Or vice-versa for that matter. And then of course there's them hoo-ha stories, which make none of the pretense about tying in so long as you're doubled over and crackin' up!"

From Issue 2: "Now, the stories that I carry in this shop have been told from as many points of view as there are thinking beings on this planet. That makes for some interesting perspectives, even on the same stories that we've heard over and over again. Everybody's got his or her own personal spin on events, and ideas of the outcomes too, that may rankle some folks: 'Hey, I was there! He didn't do that!' they shout over their half-drained lomin ales . Then somebody else pipes in with 'What do you know? You weren't even hatched when that happened!' and then the place devolves into a classic brawl.

I have a little more respect for the differing viewpoints. For one, every different viewpoint is another story I can rent! For another, despite the fact that our perceptions are based on the same incoming information, everybody has his or her own interpretations of things, no matter what lobe they're using or how glitterstimmed their ganglia may be. That's what makes this the most colorful galaxy in the universe, eh?
